Celtic drawn against Helsingborg in CL playoff

  •  

NYON, Switzerland (AP) -Scottish champion Celtic will play Swedish league winner Helsingborg for a place in the group stage of the Champions League.

The playoff draw Friday also pitted Spanish side Malaga against Panathanaikos of Greece. The Andalucia-based side is in financial turmoil despite reaching club football's most illustrious competition for the first time in its history, and allegedly owes a number of clubs money for players bought last season.

German club Borussia Moenchengladbach will face Dynamo Kiev of Ukraine and Spartak Moscow of Russia will play Turkish club Fenerbahce.

The first leg of the ties will be played on Aug. 21-22 with the return fixture the following week on Aug.28-29.
